Benefits for Community Managers
CAI gives you the opportunity to learn from your peers, share your own expertise, and access tools, resources and information that can make you a more effective and respected manager.
Membership includes automatic enrollment in one of CAI's chapters based on zip code. Look through our list of CAI chapters to find one in your area.
Here are the resources and services you'll receive as a CAI member:
The annual membership dues are $139. This amount includes the mandatory Advocacy Support Fee of $20 and an optional $10 contribution to CAI's Foundation for Community Association Research—a tax deductible donation to a 501(c)(3) organization.
Every dollar of the mandatory $20 Advocacy Support Fee goes directly to states with CAI legislative action committees and supports the efforts of CAI to represent and protect our members on state legislative and regulatory issues.
The Foundation for Community Association Research operates on behalf of the industry and conducts surveys and research, provides national programming and produces a variety of publications, including the series of Best Practice reports. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
Membership dues are nonrefundable.
